Dubai Media Office

To mark the success of the UAE's historic Mars Mission, a hospital in Dubai decided to celebrate in a unique style.

Babies born on February 9, the day the Hope Probe successfully entered the Mars orbit, were dressed in cute mini-astronaut suits with the UAE flag printed on it.

A video of the four babies flaunting their new outfits were shared on Dubai Media Office's official Twitter handle.

"Astronauts of the future, born on Feb 9, 2021 — the day the UAE made it to Mars," the caption read

"A new beginning for a bright Emirati future that does not know the impossible."
